Pundit ‘CAN SEE WHY’ £43M star has made big Manchester United transfer decision!

Gary Neville said he “can see why” Manchester United target Benjamin Sesko turned down a Premier League move to remain at RB Leipzig.

Sesko has been courted by Manchester United and Arsenal, with the Red Devils reportedly leading the chase to sign the talented young striker after courting the man for the past 12 months or so.

Erik Ten Hag is in the market for a new striker this summer and that £43 million asking price that Sesko had in his contract before he agreed a new contract at the German side meant that he would be a great long-term investment for the Red Devils.

However, the 21-year-old is going nowhere this summer with Leipzig confirming he will remain with the club for another year at least after signing a new deal, and Neville has opened up on the decision to stay put for the lad.

“[He’s got] goals, youth and physically,” Neville said on ITV. “I think we are moving back to having a big physical striker up front, the game seems to have flipped a little bit by having big defenders and big strikers.

“He is someone who has so much potential and you can see why Premier League clubs are interested. But I can also see why, what is being suggested, he is staying at Leipzig for another year.”

Manchester United would have been a brilliant move for Sesko – he could have been a man that lead that United attack – But it is the right decision to stay put – too many young players leave for big clubs and see their careers go in the wrong decision – so this is a very smart move for Sesko and Leipzig.

He may cost more next summer-  but he will be a better player for staying put.
